Market Street Boat Harbour Wall, c.1850s

The Market Street boat harbour wall constructed in the 1850s has just been re-exposed as part of the Light Rail works in Newcastle. Tim Adams, Principal Archaeologist from Umwelt led a tour last Friday afternoon for the Hunter Living Histories researchers.

Portions of it will likely be removed as part of imminent works, and it appears that work has already begun.
